A few of us participated in the “Unity March” held on June 22nd in Flint.   This event brings together people in a rally against violence, and to remember those that have been lost to violence.

As I marched through our broken City I couldn’t help to dream.

What could we accomplish if we combined efforts in unity?    We have so many good and generous people with great ideas. 

  • What if we put aside our differences, pooled our resources, and took action on a few ideas at a time?
  • Would we gain enough recognition to excite people to join the cause?
  • Could we concentrate on a few good plans to remove barriers to employment opportunities and education?
  • Could we get more recognition on good works rather than the bad happenings?

Our community still ranks high in unemployment, poverty, and homicides.  It’s up to those of us who still dream to look for solutions.

Let’s work together to make our community a great turnaround story.  Let’s be known for our unified work to bring back prosperity in our community.
